We are the oldest species/life in the universe, anywhere else you go your going to find young planets undeveloped, and in the earliest stages of
If you want Aliens, look no further than your own backyard, because if there isn't life in our Solar System other than on Earth, Mars, Titan, Europa,
etc. Your not going to find it...
The Universe is 10 billion years old est. Earth is 6 billion years old. everything is spreading out away from us
Interesting statement, so if i am understanding you, you're saying that Planet Earth, and the Human Race are the most advanced civilisation in the
By the most precise calculations and observations the Universe is thought to be closer to 14 Billion years old, some even estimate that it could be
between 12-20 billion years, the exact age is inconclusive.
The planet formed 4.54 billion years ago, and life appeared on its surface within a billion years
so that means the farther away from earth you get, the younger everything is...
The Universe is expanding, but to say that everything is younger the further away from Earth you get is not accurate.
After the formation of the sun, planets were formed, the exact age is not known of other planets, it is a precise calculated guess.
We already know that outside our Solar System are other clusters of planets, each with their own sun, some with several suns, we cannot deny life can
survive on these planets when we only have an understanding of what, and how life can survive on Earth.
Who are we to know if there are millions of solar systems out there not yet discovered, with advanced civilisations, or microbes on it? We don't
know, there is no evidence to support either claim, all we have is common sence and an understanding of our own planet.
It's already been discovered on Earth there are life forms that don't need the sun, that don't need oxygen to survive, is it that unbelievable that
the same sort of life, or a different kind of life could exist in a Universe which is possible infinite in volume?
